EP 575 A mixed bag of wine. Alsace, Beaujolais and the Rhone valley.

Gary Vaynerchuk tries 3 very interesting wines in a format he is far more accustomed to. The format you see today is reminiscent to the way Gary and many other wine buyers BUY wine for their establishments!

Wines tasted in this episode:

2006 Albrecht Gewurztraminer ReserveAlsace Gewurztraminer
St. Cosme St James Little Basket PressOther Rhone Red Wine
2005 Potel-aviron Moulin A Vent VvCru Beaujolais

    HUGE SHOUTOUT to another great show. I’m a newbie to winelibrary (about 2 months) and your show is “hands down” the most educational & FUN piece on the web.
    QOTD: With the slow ecomony and hence slow sales (for some) how would you go about a normal work week different this year than in the past. BTW this is my 2nd year in wine sales and could use any little piece of advice.
    Thanks

    QOTD: Given that sense experience is a subjective phenomenon, why should I listen to anything you say about wine analysis? Your common response is, “Don’t listen to what I say.” However, if I then don’t listen to what you say, I will be following your advice of not listening to what you say. Do you think this is an infinite regression or can you think of a way out of this?

    Back to the roots…or so it seemed, you were very relaxed and then the shows seem even better. Nice wines as well…I’m eager to taste them (although I’m off for Australia this Friday and will expand my palate there!)

    QOTD : I would like to talk to you about your Russian roots (traditional celebrations, habits, …)…in my opinion, we forget too easily our roots (to fit in, I guess), but there are so many things our kids might enjoy what we enjoyed when we were kids…don’t put it aside, but cherish it!

    I would ask how did you know that I was spending Thanksgiving with my Aunt Sue? Crazy. That Gerwurtz sounds right up my alley.

    Nice show and way to give props to Cru Beaujolais. Cru Beaujolais was the wine that hooked me as a “serious” wine drinker. Which reminds me that there isn’t any in my cellar at the moment so I have to change that.

    QOTD: If you had to suggest one varietal (one red and one white) that most people have never had and should try, what would they be?

    That Gewürz sounds great and the Gamay as well! If only I could buy every bottle in your store!

    QOTD: What do you do to chill out (or do you have any time for that)?

    I love the Potel-aviron Moulin A Vent. I had it at Elettaria on 8th St. in the Village, and I was blown away by it. I’ve been drinking 2005 Beaujolais whenever I can find them, and they are all very good, but none were as good as the Potel-aviron. It made such an impression on me, that I still remember what it tastes like. And I was predicting your tasting notes even before you said them — strawberry, then cream, then silky. YOU NAILED IT!

    I’ve been looking for this wine in wineshops in NYC since the Spring, and I could never find it. I’m so glad you have it. Your palate is really amazingly similar to mine. Kudos Gary.

    Great wines.

    QOTD: How do you keep focussed? If I was trying so much wine all of the time, then I would probably get locked into some types. How do you keep an open mind?

    QOTD: I guess a question would come to me if we were actually sitting together over a glass of wine. It would depend on the mood as to what the question would be.

    Gary, this is one of my favorite episodes to date. I love the “grab-bag” format; some interesting wines; some QPR going on; some tight tasting notes; and a great “QOTD”. You should bring back this format in the future! It would be awesome to chill on the laid-back friday couch, over some varieties I’ve never tried before (there are still many!) and just talk about wine, music, business…oh and as a 22 year old I resent the boy/man remarks!
